Rebels in Central African Republic have dismissed the president's offer to form a national unity government.

"We don't believe in [Francois] Bozize's promises," rebel spokesman Eric Massi told the BBC.

He accused the security forces of attacking members of ethnic groups seen as rebel sympathisers—the government has previously denied such claims.
